Masters Swimming: Krattli, Von Isser Set National Marks at Southwest Zone Championships -- April 9, 2001

By Mark Gill

TEMPE, Arizona, March 9. UNSEASONALLY cool weather did not affect the swimming at the USMS Southwest Zone Championships, held in Tempe, Arizona, March 6-8. Some 235 swimmers showed up at Arizona State University pool to test themselves at the regional championship.

Three national records were set in the competition--all in breaststroke events. Caroline Krattli, 39, blasted her own national marks in the women's 35-39 age group. The San Diego Swim Masters ace clocked 30.40 for the 50 yard breaststroke, erasing her own standard of 30.59.

In the 100 yard breaststroke, she blasted an astounding 1:04.96, devastating her own record of 1:06.31 set last year. Next year, she ages up.

Max von Isser, 81, smashed his own 100 yard breaststroke record in the men's 80-84 age group. Von Isser glided to a 1:31.10 clocking, well under his national standard of 1:32.31.

Camilla Johansson, 27, a former member of the Swedish National Team, swam the 200 yard backstroke in 2:01.31, just two-hundredths of a second slower than Diane Graner's 25-29 mark set ten years ago.

Phoenix Swim Club, coached by Matt and Mark Rankin, won the team title for the first time.
